Flash Forward Festival
Emerging Photographers from Canada,
The Flash Forward Festival was an extension of The Magenta Foundation’s successful annual emerging photographers competition, Flash Forward. The competition was established as a platform to promote emerging artists and has positioned itself as the critically important vanguard for introducing international emerging talent to a global audience.
The biennial festival provided an in-depth experience for emerging photographers through educational and networking opportunities including events with collectors/arts enthusiasts and industry professionals (academics, gallerists, media/art directors and photo editors).
The festival included five curated exhibitions — representing the three host countries plus one guest country invited to showcase their best emerging photographers — as well as workshops, a lecture series, nightly events, an art fair and a major closing event that was filmed and transmitted globally.
